Application Solutions

Box Maker

To speed up your box maker and cut costs, look no further than hot melt adhesives. Our EVAs cost less per box than tape or staples and can be applied to the manufacturing joint at higher speeds.  Hot melts offer better adhesion to coated boxes than liquid glue and are the go-to for pilferage resistant packaging.  Pair one of our adhesives with an AutoPack® 715 hot melt system and our TP Series Box Making Gun to upgrade your box maker today!

Longitudinal Seam


Hot Melt Technologies® offers a wide range of glue machines, heated hoses, automatic valves, and nozzles to meet the demands of your folder-gluer line. For high output carton manufacturing, a ProFlex® system with a 50 lb tank will meet the melt rate requirements of most box making applications; our 900 Series automatic valves, available in single or multi-bead nozzle configurations, will provide the ideal glue pattern. If you are struggling to adhere coated containers, try one of our hot melt EVAs. We offer a variety of formulations that will outperform liquid glues.
